Are Microschools the Future of Schooling? (from the NV Indy)
Will a proliferation of new microschools offer a better solution for a new generation of students?
A growing community within education believes they just might.
What is a microschool? While strict definitions are not common, microschools are typically described with these characteristics:
- A microschool generally serves less than 25 students, and has only a minimal administrative staff, holding down costs.
- A microschool can convene in a home or alternate setting, and can be organized as a public charter school, a private school, or a homeschooling co-op.
